Explanation

Long and difficult one. The best way to attack it is to figure out the second part and then pick the first blank accordingly.

In general, Moore was in a certain way: calm. So for the second and third blank F and H are the best. As it turns out, for the first one he was uncomfortable, then A is the best choice.

I don't really get how we determine the shift that he was uncomfortable for (i)?

Moore was (i) _______ ill-at-ease.

ill-at-ease= uncorfortable

His (ii) _______ had always been a distinguishing feature. It was what made him a good con artist and a good informant. He was one of those men who accepted dares with an easygoing smile and did outrageous things with (iii) ______ that made him successful in the dangerous world in which he operated. But just now he was NOT FEELING very sure of himself.

Turns our he was weirdly uncomfortable

Regards

If he accpeted challenges with an easy smile and now he was not feeling sure, so the first blank will be uncharacteristically. THe other two blanks describe how he had always been prior too his indecision now, so both will be positive and support that he easily did dangerous tasks. so F and H
